attractions-gnaraloobay-sanctuaryA short seven kilometer drive from Gnaraloo Homestead, you’ll find yourself at the sandy entrance of Gnaraloo Bay. A small boat launch is your gateway to great fishing out in the deep blue. The shallower turquoise waters are inviting and they will not disappoint. An amazing show of turtles, rays and colourful fish swim through the reef should you choose to follow them on your snorkel or dive. Dry off on the tall, soft sand dunes that border the water.

What better way to enjoy nature’s naked beauty than go ‘au natural’ yourself! The clothing-optional Nature Bay can be found along a secluded stretch of shoreline. There is an unsealed access road that will get you there, or if you’re feeling like a stroll, you can walk along the beach, past the point from Gnaraloo Bay.

See Free Beach WA

"We hear so much these days about the loss of free beaches as areas develop or local authorities decide that it is no longer appropriate. While other family clothing-optional beaches have become dominated by groups who don't have the best interests of naturism at heart. So it is really great to be able to spread the news about a new clothing-optional beach in Western Australia that is signposted and sanctioned by the landowner. What is more, beach access is easy with an upgraded access track and car park track, and the beach itself is as good as it gets."

Dive into a little history off the coast and check out the Magnolia wreck. In 1938, this leisure vessel got caught in a strong current and was swallowed by the sea. Kangaroo on the beach

If you’re ready for world-class waves, head out for the best-kept surfing secret on the West coast. The waves are no joke - the strong left barrel breaks over a sharp reef. Experienced surfers will love the challenge.

In 2011, UNESCO inscribed the Ningaloo Coast on its World Heritage List for its natural beauty and biological diversity. See for yourself - it’s only steps from Gnaraloo’s coast.

The listing of the Ningaloo Coast means the area ranks alongside sites such as the Great Barrier Reef, the Grand Canyon, Egypt's Pyramids, Yellowstone National Park, Stonehenge and Tanzania's Serengeti National Park.
